Russia increasing troop levels in Abkhazia

The Georgian government says that Russia is increasing its military presence in Abkhazia in order to take advantage of the current unrest in Georgia, according to Newsru.com. On April 8, RFE/RL’s Georgia Service reported that Russian troops  began entering Abkhazia’s Gali region on April 7, and the military buildup has been continuing ever since. 

Russia evidently hopes to destabilize the situation in Georgia, which is being aggravated by opposition protests.
